Location & Travel

Where Are We?

The Tautsina Surf Lodge is located on Tautsina Island just off the NE coast of Bougainville Island, (which is an Autonomous Region of Papua New Guinea) and only 30 min away from Kieta airport.

Getting Here

The most frequent flights to the area with international connections via Port Moresby (POM), Papua New Guinea, are with Air Niugini.

Air Niugini flies to POM from Australia (Brisbane, Sydney and Cairns), as well as Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore and Manila.

From POM your final destination is Kieta (KIE) where we’ll meet you on arrival, then 30 min drive to Tautsina Surf Lodge. Both Air Niugini and PNG Air fly POM – KIE. Two return flights per week.

You can also fly POM – Buka (BUK) where we’ll meet you on arrival, then 3 hour drive to Tautsina Surf Lodge. Both Air Niugini and PNG Air fly POM – BUK. Six return flights per week.

Air Niugini allow boards up to 3m / 9’10” with a total weight (including boards) of 30kg providing there is less than 24 hours between your international and domestic flights – this is easily doable with Air Niugini schedules.
